otherwise the drive shafts dont have the angle, i can usually get them out with the old way(with shocks still on)
People complained about "quick access diffs".. the ONLY car they are quick access was the DNX8...

If anyone is on the fence about the S35-3 its a sweet kit. Super easy to drive and very durable. I ve owned pretty much every manufacture and the sworkz suits my style of driving perfect. Cant't wait to see the future evolution of this kit. i rate it above mugen and associated....IMO.

we've been running ebuggy and nitro for awhile now, parts quality is amazing - alloy parts std.
The cars both drive really well and the shocks just work, boots and cav have been using mugen springs just for the sake of more options.
Friend told me the new rear toe block etc is coming as an upgrade package very soon(its just a wide rear pivot) some prefer the neumann setup of the s350(available as a worlds package, long arms, mugen style rear hubs)

parts are cheap... we haven't broken a single thing, and have only replaced shock orings and a few other things like that.

actually thats something i shouldve put into post before, the pins are wearing in the centre but the outdrives dont wear like the mugen ones, they must be made from a harder steel.
we do change these out every now and again with the mugen tool, the dogbones/shafts have been holding up good however

That's good to hear. I may try Sworkz in the future.

they are about to be the only car available that has 3 possible rear ends readily available, long arm short hub, slighter shorter arm with longer hub(stock) or wide pivot short arm short hub. that gives it all 3 popular rear ends, obviously wide pivot short arm has the most natural cornor speed, and as the arm gets longer the more planted the rear is.. in theory anyway.

Some people have been putting a longer screw through bottom of shock with a nut on the end(stock both are std thread) sworkz does have an option for left hand thread ones that i think actually require a 5.5 nut driver.

Should say kinda of fits. Sides of body is to large and does not counter well to chassis. You also have to cut a lot on the body to get the steering to work.
